How do you keep up with daily goals and to do lists? I picked up this cute notebook at Hobby Lobby for $3 and added some tabs I picked up at Staples (along with my new lime green tape dispenser).

I found this pin which took me to this blog post.
I had to improvise a little bit when I realized that I needed lemon cake and I was using just yellow cake mix... BUT I had some lemonade drink mix! So I added 2 of those, in hindsight I might only use 1. I followed the blog for the rest if the cake ingredients (oil, lime jello, oj).
Them comes the icing. I didn't think the cream cheese would be what I was looking for so I made a buttercream and mixed in some oj. It was a major fail! It kept separating...
Plain cupcakes it is!
They were perfect for after spicy crawfish and sausage. Just the perfect amount of tang.

I got to see the Lorax Friday night. It was cute and funny. I'm a sucker for cute dancing fuzzy bears.
Saturday I made key lime cupcakes (I'll show you how tomorrow). And we went to a crawfish boil. I had never had crawfish before. I prefer shrimp. Lots of spicy food!
Then I went bowling with my sister. I broke 100! Good times.
Sunday was spent cutting up thrift store finds from a month ago. I'm prepping for two craft fairs next month. I may have to make it just one. Next month is also 4 friends birthday's.
I got exciting news that Jexica is transferring to UALR for next year! Now I can steal her more easily for craft days. Yay!

Do you ever have daydreams of what you really want to happen in your life? But you are afraid to voice them because life has dictated that anytime you have ever wanted something you either don't get it at all or you only get it after life has kicked you around....
I'm going to motivate myself into getting more things done. To work towards the goals. All the while still being afraid to say out loud what those goals are.
Does this make any sense at all?
Maybe I can make them happen, then tell you all about it.

It put this idea in my head and I've been jotting down ideas all day yesterday and today. Basically its a crafter workbook focused on goals, lists, self evaluation and exercises.
I'm going to work mine into the Smashbook that I bought last summer and haven't really used yet. But I'm also going to work up printable medallion type pages so you can add them to any scrapbook of yours. And maybe an ebook (maybe for a couple bucks on Etsy) that can be printed in it's whole and spiral bound at the local copy shop for a book all to itself.

Obsessing over: life. As in the big picture. Scott and I have been taking about engagement rings (my favorites pictured below), houses, wedding, honeymoon, and most importantly how much we want a dog.
Reading: Hungry Girl 200 under 200 cookbook. Some of the recipes are looking totally yummy. Combine this with "Not My Mama's Meals" on the cooking channel and eating healthier looks totally doable.
Feeling: Jexica helped me with this earlier today... Joy. I feel joy. Life is good.
Needing to: craft. I need to get some of this creative juice from talking ideas with Jexica and actually MAKE something.
Listening to: that song from the Roberto Cavalli perfume commercial.
Working on: nothing. That is a problem.
Wishing I was: out of my lease. I would love to be able to go house shopping.
Anticipating: all the good movies coming out soon. Hunger Games!
Thinking about: using the Sharpie Stain pens I got to decorate a plain white tote.
Drinking: Donut Shop Decaf coffee
I have seen this done several times on Pinterest so I decided to try it. Just take yogurt and dot it on some wax paper and freeze. It is supposed to be better than Dots.
Review on it later when they are frozen!
Edit: they were frozen enough to try before I left to go back to work. YUMMY.

But it has to be altered and the sales woman said the first thing the seamstress its going to ask is if she has her shoes. And since poor Jex its trying to plan this during her spring break that meant we were on a shoe mission! Cut to six stores later... Really, nobody has blue shoes? So the next day we hit up five more and low and behold, DSW to the rescue! Not only did they have several shoes in blue but we also found bridesmaids shoes! Which I also love!
I was worn out! But I think she got so much done. And as evidenced by the crowd at dinner Wednesday night, she has plenty of help!
Ps. The dress in the picture is not THE dress, I can't ruin the surprise.

I've been trying to decide if I want to go back to my hair being red and so many pictures on Pinterest have inspired me to seriously consider it. And I saw this today and I've decided I want my hair like this. Lots of red highlights on my naturally dark base.
(ps. I totally plan on trying the style too)
